Lien. Gate Motors shall have a general lien on any goods, items or any parts thereof or other paraphernalia which are the buyer’s property giving the right to retain possession or to withhold delivery, or of stoppage in transit, until all outstanding payments, costs, expenses, or losses suffered or incurred as the result of any breach of contract of the customer, has been paid for or otherwise satisfied. Should due payment not be received within three months of the due date, Gate Motors will sell or dispose all or part of the retained items in any way that it sees fit without further notice and keep the proceeds of sale in diminution of such sums and all costs incurred by the company in effecting the said sales. Any balance remaining shall be remitted to the customer. Upon any such sale title in the goods shall pass to the purchaser thereof.

DELIVERY

If no specific instructions are included in the customer’s order, consignments will be despatched by our normal route and mode of transport to the usual destination or the destination indicated on the customer’s order. Gate Motors accepts no responsibility for errors where written confirmation has not been received. Every effort is made to meet quoted delivery times, but it is impossible to guarantee them. Gate Motors shall not be liable in any way for failure to deliver on time whatever the reason. NOTE: our deliveries are normally made by Chase Freight APC and a signature is always required due to the high value of our goods. The buyer must examine the goods on receipt of delivery before signing any consignment note. All deliveries will be considered as received in good condition unless you specifically sign as ’damaged’, etc. ’Unchecked’ will not be accepted as a valid status. Your signature on the delivery receipt is your acceptance of the goods arriving in good condition unless they are signed for as damaged. If there is nobody available to receive your delivery at your stated delivery address, the courier company will usually leave a card for you to organise collection from your local depot. If you require redelivery, then each redelivery must be paid for in advance; the cost of each re-delivery will be at 50% of the normal (non-promotional) delivery charge to you or £9 ex-VAT whichever is the greater. Strict enforcement of this delivery policy helps keep our delivery charges to a minimum for the majority of our customers. All goods are packed to ensure safe carriage, and the company cannot accept responsibility for loss or damage in transit. Complaints of loss or damage must be notified to the carriers and Gate Motors within three working days of the date of delivery; a claim must similarly be made within seven days of the date of delivery.

For deliveries outside the EU it is possible for you to arrange your own courier service; however, if you choose to use your own courier then VAT will be charged (as there is no proof of export on our behalf). You will be able to claim back your VAT once you provide HMRC with your proof of export.

ACCEPTANCE OF GOODS

We reserve the right to require the customers to take delivery of goods ordered at the agreed times, or, where goods cannot be accepted at these times, to render invoices for instruments completed, payments to be effected within our stated credit terms.

SUITABILITY OF PRODUCT

We accept no responsibility that goods stipulated by you are sufficient for any particular purpose. Verbal instructions are accepted on the basis that Gate Motors will not be held responsible for mistakes arising thereof.

OBTAINING REPAIRS & REPLACEMENTS

GateMotors.co.uk are pleased to take back and recycle used batteries free of charge for recycling for customers within the UK.

By recycling your used batteries via dedicated battery collection points you are contributing to protecting our environment and the earth's natural resources.

Batteries are made from important resources and chemicals, including lead, cadmium, zinc, lithium and mercury. If batteries are disposed of as normal municipal household waste, they will be taken to a landfill site and those resources will be lost and will contribute to the pollution of the environment. Recycling is one way you can help the environment and you should dispose of used batteries separately from other waste, using the collection and recycling schemes available.

Your role in contributing to the recycling of waste batteries and in preventing pollution of the environment is essential. Each used battery that you place in a recycling box will be taken apart and many of the materials will be recovered and used to make new batteries or something else.

All batteries are labeled with the crossed-out wheeled bin below, to indicate that they should not be disposed of as normal waste, but in specific recycling centres.

Batteries containing hazardous substances such as mercury (Hg), cadmium (Cd) or lead (Pb) are marked with their chemical symbol as well.

Please click here to identify a battery collection point near you that will accept your used batteries free of charge. Please make sure to select the 'Batteries' field before entering your postcode.

You may also contact your local authority for information on a recycling facility in your area that will take back your used batteries. For used car batteries please contact you nearest Civic Amenity Site, or check the above link by carefully looking in the results which of the sites listed will accept car batteries for recycling.

The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Regulations (WEEE Regulations)

The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Regulations are now part of UK law. The UK have agreed to reduce the amount of WEEE that is being disposed of in landfill sites.

It is important that the amount of WEEE sent to landfill sites is reduced because:

Some WEEE can be re-used or recycled. The amount of landfill space available in the UK is decreasing. If we can keep WEEE out of landfill sites it means there is more landfill space available for non-recyclable waste.

WEEE can contain hazardous substances. When left in landfill sites the hazardous substances in WEEE can pollute soil and contaminate water supplies. This contamination can damage human health and the environment.

Distributors of new Electric and Electronic Equipment (or EEE) have a part to play in reducing the amount of WEEE going into landfill sites.

GateMotors.co.uk are "doing our bit" under these regulations by offering our customers free take-back of their WEEE on a like-for-like basis when they buy a new Electrical or Electronic product.

For example, if a customer buys a new keyfob from us we will take back their old keyfob(provided it is of equivalent type and function) and prevent it going into a landfill site by disposing of it safely. Customers must return their old WEEE within 28 days of purchasing their new item. Customers do have to pay to return their old item to us.

If you wish to return your WEEE item, please contact us at the telephone number 01202-707191 or using our Contact Us form.

Under the WEEE Regulations, all new electrical goods should now be marked with the crossed-out wheeled bin symbol shown below:
